Admits her overnight celebrity is crazy

TheBosh.com has posted an article with some quotes and stuff Ms. Lively has said.

In CosmoGIRL’s November issue Blake Lively admits her overnight celebrity is crazy, PEOPLE reports.

“It is a crazy and completely insane business,”

“I’ll go to an event wearing some designer gown and tens of thousands of dollars in jewels that were lent to me for the night, and I’ll walk around and meet people who I always thought were such a big deal.”

“Stars really are like anyone else,” she says. “At the end of the day, Brad Pitt poops -as handsome as he may be – and so does Angelina Jolie. I’m still baffled by how odd this job is.”

Blake Lively refuses to condemn other young actresses who have had difficulty in that regard.

“I think some people who bash on the girls in Hollywood who are struggling with addiction or going into rehab aren’t being totally fair; it’s not solely their fault,” she says. “When you don’t have someone to model yourself after, you’re going to make mistakes. There’s no one there to tell them what’s right or wrong or who is a positive example.”

Buzz-Worthy ‘Gossip Girl’ Star Blake Lively

I found an interview over at Hollywood.com with Blake and she’s talking about Gossip Girl and som other projects.

The beautiful, willowy blonde Blake Lively, best known for her debut as Bridget in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants two years ago, is following her co-stars in that film–America Ferrera, Alexis Bledel and Amber Tamblyn–to small screen stardom this fall in the CW’s Gossip Girl.

Lively, 20, heads an ensemble in the series from O.C. creator Josh Schwartz about rich, beautiful Manhattanites–and a few outsiders looking into that world–whose lives are chronicled by the unseen but all-knowing blogger Gossip Girl.

As Serena van der Woodsen, the California native shines as a young woman whose return after a mysterious year away is the talk of the town. She gave us the scoop on the show and next summer’s Sisterhood sequel.

Hollywood.com: How did you get the role?

Blake Lively: Josh Schwartz called me about it. Maybe he watched The Sisterhood, I don’t know. I hear a lot of fans of the Gossip Girl books had seen me, and maybe because I had long blonde hair, they were blogging, ‘She has to be Serena.’ He told me “I wrote the show for you. You have to do this. I will not give it to anyone else.” We sat down and we talked about it. I thought about it for a little while. It felt right. Josh has so much heart in everything he does, from his locations to the actors he uses, to the wardrobe, and that was very important to me. That’s the reason I did the show.

Blake Lively: “America’s Like a Mom To Me!”

Over at OK! Magazine I found a little article when Blake is talking about America Ferrera.

When Gossip Girls star Blake Lively relocated to NYC to work on her new hit show, the actress got a little help from her Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants co-star America Ferrera.

“She’s a mother to me,” the 20-year-old told OK! at the Viva La Cure event held at NYCs Sea Grill Restaurant on October 17. “When I decided I was going to move to New York for the show, she sat down with me. I knew I wanted to live on the West Side, and she said, ‘No, you need to live on the East Side because of this, this and this.’ She makes lists of pros and cons about why I shouldn’t get another dog. She’s like ‘This is why you shouldn’t get one.’ America’s always very nurturing with me, which I appreciate very much. She’s awesome!”

The two are back on the big screen in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2, which hits theaters next summer.
